ISA Arts EYFS & Primary

At the ISA, we recognise the importance of the arts through all the ages within our schools, and wanted to expand our offerings to those younger pupils of our ISA members. Welcome to our page dedicated to EYFS and Primary Schools’ Pupils.

Handwriting Competition 2021

Handwriting is a skill which has been traditionally highly-valued at independent schools; we feel it should continue to be nurtured and celebrated, even in this electronic age where keyboard skills can be developed at a very young age.

Opening dates for entries: Wednesday 17 March 2021
Deadline to enter: Thursday 24 June 2021
